Members employ a multi-faceted investment strategy involving quantitative and qualitative analysis to produce investment pitches and construct a diversified portfolio. This entails a presentation for the pitch and a financial model made up of discounted cash flow analysis or leveraged buyout analysis to back up your thesis. The unique layout of these investment groups mirror the format of financial institutions, promoting exposure over several asset classes for the members. Groups are structured with a Desk Head who oversees prospective investments and facilitates team education. Following each pitch, active members vote on whether or not the investment should be included in our portfolio. All profits are reinvested into the fund or returned to members in the form of events and investing capital.
The majority of GIC's investments are based on taking a global macroeconomic outlook and understanding how different world events are effecting different markets and potential investments in each of these markets. This leads us to analyze systematic risks to increase return potential
